Lancashire word or not

I've got no idea about the spelling of this ... Caukken ......... I remember when I was a youngster and you saw something bad or had a nasty job to do (cleaning up dog muck etc) and it gave you the 'dry heaves' like you were going to throw up but nothing came up they used to say "it made me caukken" is it a proper word and did anyone else ever use it and if it is a proper word how do you spell it ?

Happen I'm dreaming or having flashbacks

You are not dreaming.
I understood it to be cautning......I think the modern word is retching.
More used in the context of a child being sick.

"it fur meks thi Cauten",
Feels like you want to be sick.
Retlaw.

Cauten/coaten.

Word we used.

Sort of a dry retch, with just a little taste of bile.

My dad did it, every time Margaret Thatcher appeared on the television.

Not really G, but I bet they'd both have made better Prime ministers though
